Gingerbread houses are a classic holiday craft! Since I didn't have gingerbread in my house, we made a graham cracker house instead. It was a good substitution and easy to work with.
Materials needed: Gingerbread or graham crackers Icing A piece of cardboard Miscellaneous candy
I started by putting icing on the piece of cardboard as my foundation (I wanted to make sure the sides stayed up so I used a small tissue box and attached the sides to that). After sides were on we made the roof.
Once the house was standing my 3 year old and 18 month old took turns decorating the house. This craft is great because kids of all ages can get involved!
Did you ever make gingerbread houses as a kid? Is it something that you usually do with your kids around the holidays?

We are doing this soon, but with rice crispy treats! We did gingerbread houses last year, but learned that they don't stay together super well... and we ate all the goodies that went on them faster than we could put them on them. lol
